·4 min read

Paul Daley may be walking away from the sport, but he couldn’t do it without adding one more highlight to his reel on home soil.

At Bellator 281 in London, “Semtex” detonated one last time with a crushing right hand to the jaw of Wendell Giacomo to cap off his exciting MMA career. It wasn’t an easy path to the final blow, but Daley overcame the grappling prowess of Giacomo to connect in a flurry, ending the fight at 4:09 in the second round.

Daley celebrated the win inside the cage with his family, as he walks away from the sport after recording his 44th professional MMA victory.

Check out the reactions on social media to Daley’s curtain call below.
